Dog Bowls & Feeders
The perfect eating environment for your dog
A favourite hobby of pretty much every dog - eating! This means it is essential that you have the perfect bowl for your dog to use. Here at zooplus you can find a selection of different dog bowls and feeders to ensure your dog loves its eating space! Whether you are looking for a heavy ceramic dog bowl, a hygienic metal dog bowl or a portable dog bowl, we have something for everyone. We also offer a range of dog placemats, dog bowl stands and automatic feeders, so that everyone's needs are catered for. You should make sure you have at least two dog bowls, so that your dog always has fresh drinking water available!
Where should I put my dog's bowl?
There are two main factors to consider when choosing where to put your dog's bowl. The first is that it should always be able to stay in the same place, so that your dog knows where to find its food and water. The second important point to consider is privacy - your dog needs somewhere to call its own, where it can enjoy its meals in peace. If your dog is expecting its area to be disturbed at any minute, it could resort to wolfing down its food faster than is healthy. You should also avoid placing your dog's feeding station too close to its bed, as this can lead to your dog getting distracted from its relaxation.
If you have more than one dog, each dog should naturally be given its own individual feeding area, at least for its food. No matter where you choose to put your dog's bowl or how many pets you have, there should always be a water bowl in a fixed place and it should always contain fresh drinking water.
What kind of bowl is right for my dog?
Plastic dog bowls - simple and practical
A plastic dog bowl is a lightweight option, meaning it can easily be moved around. Most of these bowls come with a rubber ring around the base to prevent it slipping on hard floors. These light dog bowls are perfect for on the go, as well as being easy to keep clean and being available in a range of colours and sizes. With plastic dog bowls you need to take a close look at the materials used and the quality of the product, as not all plastic are healthy for your dog. A good choice is a melamine dog bowl.
Stainless steel dog bowls - a hygienic choice
A stainless steel dog bowl is the cleanest and most elegant solution, available in a range of different sizes and designs. These metal dog bowls are not only easy to clean but they make it more difficult for bacteria and food remnants to stick around. Just like plastic dog bowls, the majority of stainless steel dog bowls feature a rubber ring around the base to keep them in place. This is ideal as it prevents your dog having to chase its food around the room!
Ceramic dog bowls - a classic!
Ceramic dog bowls are a popular choice, as they are heavy and sturdy so your dog cannot move it around or tip it over. It also means your dog will need to take more time getting to all of its food, rather than being able to rush. These ceramic dog bowls come in timeless designs or with fun motifs, and the fired glazing leaves a smooth surface that is guaranteed to be odour-neutral. A great addition to any dog feeding station!
Is your dog prone to wolfing down its food?
Does your dog eat its dinner like its going out of fashion? Here at zooplus we offer bowls specially designed to stop your dog gobbling down its dinner faster than is healthy. These types of bowl come in a range of materials and have a variety of nooks and crannies from which your dog must extract its food. Once your dog learns that it can no longer easily bolt down large chunks of food, it will learn to eat more slowly and automatically take in less air as it chews. This can not only help to improve digestion but can also encourage dental hygiene through increased chewing. We also offer dog food dispensers, which are good for dishing out small portions throughout the day or for programming to feed your dog if you will be away at mealtimes.
What accessories are there for my dog's feeding station?
To give your dog the best possible eating experience, we offer a range of different dog feeding accessories, including dog placemats, bowl stands and food storage containers. These additional products come in lots of different colours and designs - find matching accessories for your dog's bowl!
Dog placemats - for improved cleanliness
Dog placemats help to keep the area around your dog's bowl clean and hygienic. They can be easily wiped down so are simple to keep clean. These dog bowl placemats come in plenty of designs, so you are sure to find something that catches your eye!
Bowl stands - for added comfort
Dog bowl stands come in single- or double-bowl varieties. They are a practical accessory that are particularly suited to larger breed dogs. A bowl stand helps to raise the food to a more comfortable height for your large dog to eat from, as well as helping to prevent chewed food travelling back up the oesophagus. This in turn helps to prevent twisted stomach, which can be a fatal condition in dogs. A raised feeding station can also be beneficial for disabled dogs or those with severe joint, hip or spinal problems.
Food storage containers - for long-lasting freshness and flavour
A food storage container or dog food box can be ideal for keeping your home clean and your dog's food free from inquisitive insects. A dog food storage container is also a great way to keep kibble fresh and full of flavour. They come in a range of materials such as nylon or plastic, as well as in different sizes. Here at zooplus you can also find options that are ideal for on the go, such as nylon food bags, as well as smaller bags to allow you to take treats out on walks.
